Memories may be stored on your DNA

“But what is the good of friendship if one cannot say exactly what one means? Anybody can say charming things and try to please and to flatter, but a true friend always says unpleasant things, and does not mind giving pain. Indeed, if he is a really true friend he prefers it, for he knows that then he is doing good.” -Oscar Wilde

It's still an interesting topic...

My cellular memory is telling me that I should stay away from the Templars because they don't like assassins and that the Contact wishes that the Anti-Type was his mother. Still, how could an impressionable youth not be taken in by a redheaded goddess?

on Genetic memroies

I like how they're just now putting out all this stuff on Genetic memories, when it was all well chronicled 40 or so years ago.

I was thinking about having a Genetic memoryplot-line in SOLE MAN where Jon (After hacing sex with his sister) can go back and talk to(The all wise and All knowing) Adolf Hitler. I cut it becuase it was too DUNE like.

The second commenter summed it up (emphasis mine):

It would not enable memories to be inherited as the changed DNA is only in the brain. Only DNA changes in the germ cells (sperm or egg cells) are inherited. Furthermore the DNA change does not hold the information of the memory, it merely tells the neurons to keep the memory that it's got.

Let's see, reading is what again? :roll:

On Genetic memories

Postby Sole Man » 03 Dec 2008 20:17

I like to make people sick.

Anyway, I always thought that when your cells copied themsevels, the genetic material copied its memories into the new cell. The same would go for sperm or egg cells, and since this is happening constantly the memories would be constantly updated. But most of you already thought this so why did I explain it?

Genetic material doesn't have "memories" like that. (Although I suppose someone could be tedious and argue that DNA is memory, in a sense.)

Anyway, the point is, it is thought that memory is stored in the synapses, the configurations between nerve cells in the brain. This article is about the storage of the structure of the synaptic connections ON the genes of the cells, so that those connections (and the memories they encode) can be maintained. It's not about recording the actual memories in the DNA.

And even if it were about that, there remains the problem of transporting the memory-storing DNA/genes from the brain to the reproductive cells.

(Most guys act like their brains are in their dicks, but that doesn't mean there's been a flow of brain matter down that way. ;) )

Well, let's see if the clone or babies of that mouse remembers anything with the same test, should not be so hard to prove...

My Sadistic Girlfreind does think my brain is in my dick. She talks to it when I'm asleep.

But enough of that. I think Scientists who are older and wiser than with Ph.Ds are wrong. Wouldn't the meories just be stored in the memory section of your brain, where the Neurons are constantly firing off, storing and pulling up memories when the other parts of your dictate it?

But that's just my theory. And I'm and idiot who understands the laws of surrealitly better than those of Normal realaity.

How do you know she talks to it if you're aslee...oh, never mind.

Are you sure it's that she's referring to as "dick" when she thinks you're asleep? ;)

I Don't knoq Chig, she just looks at it and makes choerent sounds that are interperted as being symbols for concepts at it. Of course I've been wrong before...

Anyway, Sometimes...Sometimes I think it responds.

I actually know how to respond to that, but it would just be repetive and sound like a bad 14-year-ld boy joke.

Unless...

I guess that's another one of those you have to be there for.

How glad I am I'm not. :lol:
